 Portal 2  Holds On To Top Spot For Second Week In UK Retail Sales Charts

Portal 2 Holds On To Top Spot For Second Week In UK Retail Sales Charts

May 3, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Valve and EA's first-person puzzler Portal 2 held onto the top spot in the UK retail software sales charts for the second week in a row, in a week when there were no new releases in the top 10, UK tracking firm Chart-Track confirmed Tuesday.

For the week ended April 30, Warner Bros.' Mortal Kombat also held strong, keeping its number two spot, while Pipeworks and 505 Games' Zumba Fitness climbed one place to position three. The fitness game has not yet dropped out of the top five since its release in November 2010.

A continued price promotion on Call of Duty: Black Ops saw the best-selling shooter stay in the top 10, sitting firmly at number five. Elsewhere, the likes of Wii Fit Plus, Homefront and FIFA 11 held steady.

The only re-entry into the top ten this week is Ubisoft's dancing title Just Dance 2, which jumped back into the charts at number 10.

Below are Chart-Track's all-platforms sales charts, which include unit sales of all versions of a given title, and the individual platform charts, which treat individual SKUs separately.

The Xbox 360 version of Portal 2 continues to dominate the UK individual platforms chart, while the PS3 version sits down in fifth place. Zumba Fitness once again jumps close to the top, taking position two. As with the all-platform top 10, Zumba Fitness is yet to leave the top five.

Nintendo's Pokemon Black Version continues to hold on to the bottom end of the top 10, hanging onto number 10. Both versions of Mortal Kombat dropped one place since last week, and now take positions at three and four.
